    Abstract

    We report on the new X-JToBI prosodic labeling scheme, the eXtended version of J-ToBI which has grown out of our work on annotating prosodic features of spontaneous speech. Among the new characteristics of X-JToBI are 1) Exact match between the time-stamp of tone labels and the timing of physical events, 2) Enlargement of the inventory of boundary pitch movements, 3) Extension and ramification of the usage of break indices, and 4) Newly defined labels for filled-pause and non-lexical prominence.
